	Well, pays attention as to check its content syntax,
	but does not act upon it.

	That header is sendmailism, which is not really standardized.
(Wide usage doesn't always count as standard..)    I didn't find
"Return-Receipt-To:" referred to in any RFC in range 800..1499.

Lately PP-mailer contained in ISODE package has shown habits of marking
sort of "(Receipt Notification Requested)" et.al. things into INDIVIDUAL

Check RFC 1327.

On overall, this is a topic under developement in IETF (but I haven't
seen results..)

PS:	I just wrote partial support for RFC1425..RFC1428 extensions
	into the smtpserver.  Some cleanups are still necessary, however
	it was a good excercise on madness of RFC-821 <path> syntax..
	( ! and % were illegal in address, as well as address
	  foo@[].[]   was valid!  )
	More after Amsterdam IETF.
